Special one night launch event for the third release from Kentucky Senator, The John G. Carlisle, on August 10th at Smoke Justis.
We are getting excited about a special event at one of our B-Line stops. Make your plans now to attend the Northern Kentucky launch of the new release from Kentucky Senator Bourbon.
Kentucky State Senate Majority Leader and co-founder of Kentucky Senator Bourbon, Damon Thayer, will be at Smoke Justis on August 10th from 6:00 – 8:00 p.m. to launch their new release, the John G. Carlisle.
Kentucky Senator is a storied brand in the state of Kentucky with deep roots in Northern Kentucky. Whiskey makers of excellence, Crigler & Crigler, were based in Covington, KY on Pike and Scott streets prior to Prohibition. They originally produced the Kentucky Senator brand for the world as one the finest Kentucky Bourbons.
Senator Thayer and his partner gave Kentucky Senator new life by working with various providers to recreate this celebrated brand. They dedicate each release to a Kentucky Senator that has left their mark on history. The first release of Kentucky Senator honored Alben W. Barkley, a Kentucky Senator that became Vice President of the United States under President Harry S. Truman. The second release commemorated William J Deboe, a sponsor of the 17th Amendment to the Constitution. We are especially excited about the third release of Kentucky Senator, celebrating Covington’s John G. Carlisle, who was critical to the passing of the Bottled in Bond Act in 1864.
The John G. Carlisle Kentucky Senator release is a seven-year-old bourbon at a 107 proof. We asked Executive Bourbon Steward and Head Bourbon personality at Smoke Justis, Jade Colwell, to give us some tasting notes to get you excited. She shared her thoughts on the new Kentucky Senator release as “a 7-year-old gem that has budding hints of freshly picked cherries on the tongue. As the bourbon progresses on the pallet shades of sour apple and freshly churned butter appear. Just when you think you are done it hits you with a perfect blend of walnuts and tangerine”.
Make sure to mark your calendar for August 10th at Smoke Justis for a chance to meet co-founder Senator Damon Thayer, sip some Kentucky Senator John G. Carlisle and learn more about what is next for the brand. The event is open to the public and begins at 6:00 p.m.
